Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


And in his dreams that night, Little Levy was a rather louche, swashbuckling buccaneer, hatching a plat with his sidekick, Miney Moe, to waylay King Kong's galleons on the Spanish Main, seize a fortune in Gold Imperials and Doubloons, kidnap the daughter of the Governor of Martinique and carry her off to his own Desert Island—"Jamaica?" asked Moe, "no, it was her own idea," laughed Levy, tossing back his curly black hair, white teeth sparkling in the sunwhere Man Friday and Men Saturday and Sunday would have cooked a sumptuous feast for the heroic crew of The Salty Seadog and Hula-Hula girls in grass skirts would bring golden platter of meat and fish and chips and flagons of Irn Bru as the Pirates sang sea-shanties and nursery rhymes to the Mermaids who swam in the calm blue waters of the lagoon and nearby a solar-powered record player would select one of Levy's eight favourite discs, rescued from the Titanic after it struck a Great White Whale and sank, and everyone would fall silent and listen with rapt expressions on their faces as the sound of The Beach Boys' Good Vibrations filled the tropical air and Levy would check the delenda on his fiendishly impenetrable Treasure Mapif you really don't want anyone to find your booty, why make it easy for themand deleted South at one point and fifty paces at another, "ha ha ha, with any luck they'll fall off the cliff," he thought as his mind slid about with the oscillations of the theremin and his dream became a jumble of nonsense.
